Nissan's Skyline series has become legendary in the local scene, thanks in part to its racetrack success and the fact it's represented great value for money in the grey import market.

The nameplate has been around since 1957 and over the years has developed into a serious performance brand.

By the time the R34 came along - 1998-2002 - it had developed into a range with several niche variants, including a four-door.

When it came to engines, you had four choices: straight sixes in the basic 2.0lt, the 2.5lt or the 2.5 with turbo and 2.6lt with twin turbos. (Look for this buyer guide from our archives.)

By now there were three transmissions: five or six-speed manuals, plus a four-speed auto.

The car you see here has the 2.5 normally-aspirated six with the auto. That engine had a claimed 149kW (200hp), which is enough to make it an interesting drive.

The Vic owner says it's just had a big service with a lot of consumable parts replaced, and it comes with a RWC. It's priced at $9000.
